The lowline’s docile nature make for easy handling, they are great for newcomers to the cattle industry.  They have a stocking rate of 2:1, which make them a perfect fit for small acreage.   Lowlines have a larger rib eye area per hundred weight.  They make great mothers and are known for their calving ease.  Lowlines maintain themselves on half the feed of a traditional cow and finish well on grass, this equals less feed and less production cost.  Now a couple of personal notes:  A farmer friend of ours was quite surprised to discover that we only fed grass.  He commented that his cattle would not look nearly as good as ours on just grass and the butcher has commented many times about how little waste this breed has.
